But focusing on what we can’t eat has the potential to lead us into a downward spiral of despair and panic about what to eat, and how to eliminate all animal foods and their by-products whilst ensuring that our nutritional requirements are met. The good news is, gone are the days where tasteless tofu was the only thing on the menu. Not only has the tofu improved, but so have the meat and dairy substitutes. Starting with anything new always requires some adjusting, research…
